A: This is very important. There are a few specific safety issues which we ask that you review. They apply to any helicopter you might ever fly in, not just St. Lucia Helicopters'. Please click here for pictures and a discussion of helicopter passenger safety.

A: Weather groundings are very rare in St. Lucia, but should it happen, we make the determination well ahead of time so alternate arrangements for ground transport can be made. Monies will be refunded provided St. Lucia Helicopters is the one making the cancellation call.

A: St. Lucia Helicopters has considerable redundancy in its equipment, and flights are scheduled to allow for last minute changes, and possible delays. After 25 years, and tens of thousands of passengers, the company has developed procedures that give it a near perfect performance record.

A: Not likely. The high angular moment of the helicopter's spinning blades, in effect a big gyro, make a helicopter's ride smoother than similarly sized airplanes. This is one of the reasons they are good as photographic platforms. Nevertheless, there are air sickness bags on-board.
